Exhibit: WPA Toy Loan Project

February 20 @ 8:00 am - April 30 @ 5:00 pm

Archives’ newest exhibit examines the WPA toy loan project in Milwaukee, which gained national recognition for its success and influenced communities in other states to start their own toy loan programs. From 1938 until 1941, children up to 16 years old could borrow one toy per week, free of charge, from the twenty toy loan centers scattered across Milwaukee County.
